Did you know that in the state of California it is illegal for a Merchant to impose a surcharge on you for using a credit card, regardless of the amount of the of the bill they cannot charge you a fee for using a credit card.  So that means all these liquor stores or fast found joints that charge a fee when you use your credit card are breaking the law.  California Civil Code Section 1748.1.  This is also illegal in most states through the US.  I found this out because of an article that is going around that merchants cannot require you to provide ID for proof of identity when using a credit card.  And to think is is normal practice…
